“Great place to visit”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

We didn't stay at Los Lagos, so cannot comment on the rooms. The pools were great, though, and we enjoyed the butterflies and flowers. The first time, the kids wanted to go ziplining again, and while it wasn't very high or long, it was fun for them. The second time we visited, there was a group of high school kids who pretty much took over the place and it was not pleasant, but that wasn't the fault of the management. The food was good, service excellent.

A friend and I were staying at a working farm about a half-hour away, but our host made sure we knew that Los Lagos was the best recreational value in the La Fortuna area. Great package for zip lining, spa, pool, and the zoo features here. Great staff. We stayed all day - much longer than we planned. A really great all-in-one stop.

The zip line (or Canopy) was a lot of fun, in a small group, and very attentive guides. About a dozen runs in all, ending back at the pool. Highly recommended.

We traveled with our 13 year old son here and he had a blast with all of the great water slides and the pools. This place is like a spa with all different temp pools to hang in. In the afternoon when it rained, we would hang out in the swim up bar in the warm pool and sip cool drinks until the clouds cleared. The grounds are pretty and there is plenty to do. The rooms are very adequate - just clean hotel rooms but with nice views.

This is the perfect hot springs hotel to stay at if looking for something nice and reasonably priced. Many of the hot springs hotels in the area are quite expensive, and Los Lagos is fairly priced with a beautiful resort feel. The room was basic, but exactly what we needed. The shower was luke warm - not hot, and the wi fi does not work in the room. The grounds have a small "zoo" with crocodiles, iguanas and butterfly conservatory. I traveled with two other friends - all in our twenties - and we loved it. The hot springs were amazing. One had a wet bar, and this same bar had delicious food for lunch or dinner and good drinks. The hotel has one restaurant, which was also good and had a large breakfast buffet.

This town can be a lot of fun! There's hot spring pools minutes from your room and beautiful gardens, horses, butterfly garden etc. The property is just amazing. The rooms are a little small, standard. Room 143 the bathroom window doesn't shut all the way so we had a few dozen flying creatures visit us but we are from FL so not a big deal for us. The breakfast was great and front desk staff pleasant. A few things could use improvement. The prices at the bar were so high that even someone like me who splurges on vacation would rather go downtown 5 minutes than to hang out there. The spa was the same, it's less expensive for me to get a massage here in Naples, FL than there, and yes all US prices. The wrist bands they want you to wear to get in the property and to breakfast etc are a beacon to the locals of where you are staying and makes it awkward as you are judged by it. We took ours off in town, they should do away with those it's not entry to the fair! Other than that we had a great stay.

We just returned from a retreat at Los Lagos in la Fortuna. It was a lovely experience and enjoyed by all. The food buffet, the rooms and the grounds were all beautiful. The staff were friendly, helpful and available. Unfortunately one of the women fell and broke her hip and had to be taken by ambulance back to San Jose, three and a half hours away. The manager Luis Ramirez Avendaño not only accompanied her but stayed overnight helping get her into the hospital, translating and making necessary phone calls. We were totally amazed at this unexpected concern. It is comforting to know that at such a large hotel the guests still get personalized servcie.

My husband and I just got back from Costa Rica about a week ago and La Fortuna was our first destination. Our room at Los Lagos was average nothing fabulous the biggest complaint for us was probably that the bathroom has an opening at the very top of the door so it's not very private and the pillows were really flat. But the resort it's self was awsome!! The swim up bar was great and all of the staff was friendly and helpful! The onsite exhibits were great. We met another couple who was staying at the Springs resort just up the road a ways and there room blew ours out of the water which had a splendid view! But we liked Los Lagos resort better.
